Information, Technology, Security, and other stuff.
I don't like paying for stuff. I must be an annoying customer. I tend to find a great deal on cloud servers (by great deal I mean free), use that until it runs out and then hunt down another one. For a while I was using Atlantic.net to host this blog, then I was using the free trial period with AWS, then I utilised a student pack thing from Github (yay for still having Uni email) to get $100 credits with DigitalOcean, and now that that has run out I've moved over to Azure.
Well, this time I've paid for the Azure hosting, but not without a great discount first.
The fun part though comes in trying to migrate my blog between sites. Ghost comes with a great export tool (see Settings > Labs > Export), but that doesn't cover any images you've uploaded. Nor does it cover any code injections you've added, like the Disqus comments I've put on these posts (yes, there is a code injection part in the Ghost settings, but that's only for global injections like Google Analytics).
So this is a rough guide to what I do to move between hosts. It's not automated, because it typically only happens once a year and only takes me about 15 minutes, but hopefully it helps someone in the same situation:
/tmp/migrationfolder over to the same location on the new server.
And if you did it right, you're new site should happily appear and you can shut down the old one.
